Lisa Marie Rice is one of my favorite steamy romantic suspense writers, but you'd never know it by this book. Closer to 2.5 stars than 3, Into the Crossfire is about as cliche ridden a book as I've seen lately. I realized in the first 7 pages, after reading how breathless former SEAL turned security specialist Sam Reston was each time he saw the 'most beautiful woman in the world', Nicole Pearce, I was in for a real disappointment, but I kept hoping. Pages and pages of hero and heroine with pounding hearts, the loss of coherent conversation, and, well, breathlessness. Never have I read a more overwrought opening chapter for a romantic suspense novel. It was classic old-fashioned bodice ripper stuff, only worse. Unfortunately, the first third of the book could easily have been shortened by 60 or more pages to create a more tightly written story line - or at least one that had the kind of suspense and action one expects in romantic suspense. All that breathlessness and so little story made for dull reading. There was the typical sex scene where - I'm sure you'll be shocked - they were breathless and neither could speak due to all that chemistry and .......... probably oxygen deprivation from all that breathlessness. The story finally gets moving, sort of, in the last third of the book. Unfortunately, time is past for developing the kind of thrills a romantic suspense novel should have. Heroine is saved, hero is well, heroic, bad guys are foiled, but chief bad guy goes to England to try again. Predictable. Her die hard fans will love this regardless. Try the books in her Midnight series, especially Midnight Man from Ellora's Cave for a much better steamy romantic suspense story.

I was disappointed in this book. There was too much focus on the outside conflict, and not enough love story. I was hoping this would be in the same vein as her Midnight series which I adore. The love story for me was unrealistic, the characters and their attraction to each other weren't developed enough to make their love believable. The love scenes were few and hurried. I still am an LMR fan though so I'll still continue to pick up her books. I just hope the rest of the series focuses more on the relationships.

Ok, I loved the book and would have given 5 stars if the relationship between the two characters was more. What else can I say, but very good, but needed a better development. I hope the next one does that.

8/19/12 Unfortunately I can't do half stars as I would rate this 3.5, more than B+ but less than an A. There were too many references to how "beautiful" theheroine was and I got it the first dozen times that her father was dying. Some of that wording could have been used to bring more interaction between H/h.

I love Lisa Marie Rice, she is one of my favorite romance authors. I would recommend this book and all of her books, you won't be disappointed. The romance between Sam and Nicole is HOTT!! This is the first book in this series and I also read the second one, can't wait for the third one to come out. This is a very good read and well as all her other books.

If you love Suzanne Brockmann and her Troubleshooter series then you will like Lisa Marie Rice. I love the military background as well as the suspense!

Okay, first book by this author and I was not dissapointed. I loved it! Romance moved a bit fast but even that did not bother me as much as usual. Holy cow, I fell in love with Sam.

This was the first book I've read by Lisa Marie Rice. I was an amazing book. I like how Sam is dangerous, sexy and lovable. Nicole is a perfect match for him. I ordered the other two books about his brothers Mike and Harry to see how all there lives change. I like the plot and there isn't too many sex scenes like "50 shades". Highly recommended!
